The Fangyuan Building is located in Shenyang, Northeast China's Liaoning province. The building was ranked ninth on the world's 10 ugliest buildings list, according to CNN. The building was designed by famous Taiwan architect CY Lee, designer of the Taipei 101 skyscraper. Lee wanted to fuse Eastern and Western culture into the building, but the result was incongruous.

Tianzi Garden Hotel (literally meaning Son of Heaven Hotel) is located in Beijing's Yanjiao district. Its three main sculptures depict three Chinese gods, Fu (center, symbolizing fortune), Lu (right, symbolizing prosperity) and Shou (left, symbolizing longevity). The architecture set a 2001 Guinness World Record for being the world's "biggest image building."

This wine-bottle-shaped office building is located in a factory operated by Wuliangye Group in Yibin city, Southwest China's Sichuan province.
